I
 guess this is a bit more of my every day life. During school, my camera (2nd gen Moto X) is the only camera I have on me. If I’m lucky, I’ll also have my XA, but that’s usually not the case.

There’s something really satisfying about capturing the beauty of the littlest moments in my life. Whether they happen while I’m walking back from the grocery store or just taking a second to stop and breathe on the walk to class, these little moments brighten up my life. I always take the time to stop and try to capture some aspect of that, because those moments get me through the day.

Although I usually post these types of photos on Instagram, I thought I’d start sharing them here, too.  Have a nice day, everyone. :)

MakeMIT // 2.28.15

I participated in/shot MakeMIT yesterday! It’s a hardware hackathon, and some people came up with some really cool projects.

YAY team! We basically just wanted to play with the Myo armband so we tried to make a gesture controlled wheelchair (as in those two did the actual software stuff to make it work and I made a janky scaled down wheelchair out of acrylic, the MakerBot, electrical tape, and superglue). It was my first time participating in anything like this, but I enjoyed being able to make something random just for fun.

Spring Semester + First Polaroid Shots// 2.5.15

IMG_7189I realized I really like taking pictures through windows when using a digital camera because it’s kind of like a double exposure. This is a picture that I feel like accurately represents my experience at MIT. It’s a mess and there’s so much stuff I have yet to figure out, but at the end of the day, it’s pretty incredible that I’m here in the first place. I hope I can keep that in mind as this semester picks up.

On an unrelated note, I finally tested my Land 450. It’s beautiful. This was the first shot.

I just want to take this camera everywhere now even though I will look like a fool/hipster. The results are just so beautiful. And I’m really glad it works!!

Land 450 // 2.3.15

Yeah, I got a Land… Sigh. Someone stop me from buying cameras?!

Anyway, I wasn’t sure if it worked but it seems fully functional so far. I removed the timer back so it doesn’t get in the way of the Fuji film packs. The shutter seems responsive with the battery I put in. I’m planning on converting it to AAA’s after this one dies because these batteries are extremely expensive, but I wanted to make sure it worked first. Cannot wait for some test shots with this transformer thing.
